Re: Call Of Duty Black Ops Troubleshooting Guide

Starting with Troubleshooting


How to express problem?
  1. While you are asking the problem related to your issue it is better to let the user know about then System Specification so that user will come to know about the basic problem if related to system specification. If your system is meeting all the specification then to post the configuration of your system
    Here is the system requirement for the Call Of Duty Black Ops.

    Minimum system requirements:
    • OS: Windows Vista/XP/7
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better

    • Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty black ops\players\config_mp.cfg"
    • Open it text editor
    • At the end of file type “seta logfile 1“
Now start game and your game to generate the issue with the Call Of Duty Black Ops.
You will get the logfile.log or logfile_mp.log file in installation folder. Upload this while you are discussing the problem.

Multiplayer Game Freeze with ATI Readon Card

  1. Right Click on Desktop
  2. Select Catalyst Control Center
  3. In Graphic Setting Tab, Tick “Disable Catalyst”
Most of the user are solving their issue with the same. Also as advised above install the latest driver for your Graphic Card.

What If game Crash in Single Player as well as Multiplayer?

If your game is crashing in Single Player Mode as well as Multiplayer mode then go with these step to resolve the same.
  • Navigate to C:\Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty black ops\zone\Common
  • Delete all “code_post_gfx.FF, code_post_gfx_mp.FF, code_pre_gfx.FF, code_pre_gfx_mp.FF, common.FF, common_mp.FF, common_zombies.FF” Files
  • Now “Verify the game cache integrity” (Refer above Instruction)
Note: If you are using Steam Beta, I will recommend you not to use it.

Re: Call Of Duty Black Ops Troubleshooting Guide

So for those who are still struggling to start the game with this method everywhere, there is a fix much easier to use: no need to edit the file "metadata_db_hdd", no need to download and install the Retail Update 1.02 and not have to go edit files on the hard disk of the PS3.

This fix also corrects the problem of multi-player mode. Its implementation requires about 2 minutes.

Procedure:
  • It will initially have to remove the update retail. If you have not installed, go to step 2.
  • If you have installed, go to the menu "Game" of the PS3 XMB and then in "Game Data Utility," delete "Call Of Duty Black OPS".
  • Download the package that contains the update 1.03
  • Then unzip the archive, you should get a folder "BLES01031.
  • Copy the entire contents of the "BLES01031" in the root directory of your game, then you have to overwrite existing files.
  • You only have to run the game with the usual method and with a Blu-Ray in the drive.

Re: Call Of Duty Black Ops Troubleshooting Guide

I am having a problem while playing CODBO on PS3, while I am running and trying to shoot someone, I can't shoot, but instead, my gun keeps reloading and I am not even touching the reload button. What can be done to fix it?

Thats weird, never heard of such problem before, it might be a bug as it seems. Does this happens with all the guns that you use in the game while playing? Can you try to re-assign the shooting button on the playstation 3 joystick to some other keys and check if it is still reloading? If it not then it might be a joystick problem.
